If you are already enrolled in the IHSS Program, please call 1-888-960-4477 and inform the Public Authority staff that you would like to hire a provider from the registry. The Public Authority staff will assist you with the hiring of a new home care provider.

The Public Authority Home Visitation Services 

The In-Home Supportive Services Public Authority (IHSS PA) is improving the quality of service to consumers by expediting services, assisting with provider interviews and assisting the consumer in making a well informed decision when hiring providers by offering a Home Visit service model.  Home visits and interviews will be scheduled over the phone after receiving a referral.  With this revised method of providing services, the IHSS PA can assure that consumer needs are being met in a timely manner, can advocate for both the consumer and the provider, and can promote a long-term business relationship where both parties are well informed of approved services and the responsibility that each holds in maintaining this relationship.  For more information on how services can be expedited to you or your loved ones please contact the IHSS PA at 1-888-960-4477.
